It was expected infirm as it doesn’t work that well
Well, here’s something interesting. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a 2017 flagship that is many important for a 4K HDR display, though there’s another dark pretence adult a sleeve: Its arrangement row indeed supports a high support rate 120Hz mode like a Razer Phone. Rumors of this dark shade mode have been floating around a Internet given around a time of a device’s launch, though since it requires a alteration to a heart to enable, not many users have been means to indeed exam it. Recently, however, we’ve been hearing that many users have started to exam this dark shade mode…and a formula are flattering inconsistent, unfortunately.
For context, a Xperia XZ Premium arrangement row supports 3 shade modes: 1080p@60fps, 2160p@60fps, and lastly a infirm 1080p@120fps mode. This infirm high support rate mode can be enabled by reverting this commit to a arrangement row pattern in a heart source code.
Thanks to a Sony Open Device Program that supports a Xperia XZ Premium for a latest Android Oreo release (and even on Linux heart chronicle 4.4!), it’s sincerely easy for developers to build a organic AOSP ROM for a device. (Unfortunately, there’s a slow emanate with a DRM keys being wiped when unlocking a bootloader, ensuing in trashy camera performance.) Using a latest sources, XDA Member uditrawat compiled Android 8.1 Oreo for a XZ Premium with support for a 120Hz shade mode.
According to several members of a forums who tested a build, a formula are inconsistent. Some contend that it works, while others contend it’s zero though a placebo. Personally, we consider if it worked, it would be really easy to notice. Perhaps AOSP doesn’t support high support rate displays natively and instead requires additional rags to a framework. One tester who flashed a Generic System Image build of LineageOS 15.1 for a Razer Phone reported that a phone ran during 90Hz (the default modernise rate specified in that phone’s kernel), so I’m not too certain of a reason because it doesn’t work for a Sony Xperia XZ Premium.
Regardless, it’s utterly an engaging growth to watch. There contingency have been a good reason because a Sony Xperia XZ Premium doesn’t concede for a 120Hz modernise rate out of a box. we don’t consider it has to do with opening as a device uses a same system-on-chip as a Razer Phone (the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835), so I’m disposition towards Android harmony or maybe arrangement row inconsistency. Hopefully, developers are means to work out a kinks here to get a Sony Xperia XZ Premium fast during 120Hz, or hopefully, Android P will strictly supplement support for high support rate displays. Given Sony’s lane record with submitting upstream changes to AOSP, we would consider that if a association truly wanted a XZ Premium to support a high support rate mode, we would be saying support for it in AOSP already.
